Vehicle Profile: 2020 Ford F-150
Ford has secured its place as America’s No. 1 truck brand for the past 42 years thanks in large part to the legendary F-150. The first thing many drivers think of when they envision a truck, the F-150 has set the benchmark in the segment for decades. For 2020, the Ford F-150 continues that legacy with class-leading capabilities, six powerful engine options and no shortage of innovative technologies.
The power you need
With the 2020 Ford F-150, you have your choice of six different engines, including the most powerful offered in the segment. The High-Output Twin-Turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 is now standard for the range-topping F-150 Limited and the off-road-capable F-150 Raptor, delivering a best-in-class 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.1 There’s not a slouch to be found in the F-150 engine family, with other options ranging from the legendary 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 and its best-in-class payload2 to the 3.0-liter Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel and its impressive EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway.3 With the second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost® twin-turbo V6, the F-150 delivers maximum conventional towing up to 13,200 pounds,4 which tops most full-size pickups.
The intelligence you expect
Ford shatters the stigma of the pickup putting brawn before brains, addressing both in equal measure. As formidable as its towing may be, the F-150’s class-exclusive1 Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ is just as impressive. This innovative technology simplifies the process of backing up by allowing you to set the direction of your trailer with a knob, taking the stress out of one of your most challenging tasks. The F-150 is also the latest from Ford to offer Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technologies like standard Lane-Keeping System and available Blind Spot Information System with Trailer Coverage, which give you less to worry about on your commute. Working to make your driving experience easier and more convenient is a big reason why Ford has been America’s premier truck brand for four decades and counting.
When Americans think of excellence in a pickup truck, they think of the Ford F-150. The new 2020 Ford F-150 builds on that reputation by giving you more of what you want, whether it’s presence, power or premium appointments. You’ll find the 2020 Ford F-150 at your nearest Ford dealership.
